....has paid off!
Zees little number is designed by moi, me, myself, ich.
Mind you one can't and shouldn't take ALL the credit. One ought to refer to the Designer Knitting (known to American knitters as Vogue Knitting) magazine and an article by Jared Flood.
I looked at that funny little drawing of 3 cylinders and thought "I can do that!"
One only had to pull out once. But then one was on a role. A ROLE.
Or is that a ROLL?
Made with Sublime DK cotton and 2 x 4mm circular needles.
This isn't the yarn's original colour. It was a sort of skin pink. Don't know what I was thinking when I chose THAT colour but it wasn't anything a little bit of aubergine dye couldn't fix.
Waiting now for my Jo Sharp DK cotton Kiwi colour from Threads and More to start on number two. Might change the sleeve band next time. Make it less fussy.
Still no Nikon camera in the post. Think this might be the first dud eBay purchase in about 4 years. Hope not. Otherwise $1,200 down the drain and still no camera.
Extremely chuffed with knitted summer cotton top.
